Meet Kiska

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I learned a couple of life lessons. Don't get the flu shot when you're battling a virus and don't think you can go to kitten adoption event and "just look".
We lost our Cookie early this month after a long period of declining health. We didn't want our other cat to get too used to being the queen of the house, but I didn't expect to adopt another kitty so soon. However, after reading about this little cat online my partner in crime son and I went to the adoption event on Saturday and fell in love with the personality of this little girl. She was so sweet and loving; I didn't realize what a little firecracker she is as well.
She's hard to photograph because she's pretty much constantly in motion. We were trying to find a Russian name for her because she is apparently part Russian Blue and came up with Kiska, which DH thinks means "little cat".
I've never had a bad reaction to the flu shot before, but after getting it while undergoing treatment for conjunctivitis I ended up spending Thanksgiving in bed with flu symptoms, which I hated! Son took over cooking duties and dinner went on as planned--what a blessing that was!

I'm sorry you've been sick.
What a sweet kitty. He looks just like my wheezy when he was little.
Mischievous must run in their blood line, because mine sure is too!

What a little cutie Kiska is and the perfect name! I was suckered into our last kittie Ace by some girls who had some kittens in a box at the grocery store where I shop. He was mewing at me and trying to get out of the box and the farther I walked away, the more he cried..tugged at my heartstrings..called my hubby in the parking lot to see if I could bring him home, and he has been a ham in the house ever since. Take care, and cannot wait for more kitten stories! Janice

Ooh..she's a cutie. I had to chuckle at your post because today, my son and I went looking at the SPCA. Many of the kitties had an upper resp. infection, so we didn't get to see many...we'll go back again.
Enjoy your sweet ball of fur and fun.
